Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill

For more than 200 years, stretching in front of the U.S. Capitol building on wide avenues, the neighborhood of Capitol Hill has lived an organic and varied life. Established by the federal government in the late 1700′s as a boarding house community for members of Congress, Capitol Hill has represented a unique brand of living ever since.

DC’s a city of living history. Capitol Hill exemplifies this. It pulsates with personality and its past.

Capitol Hill also has unique condo projects and modern refurbished properties, giving the old beauty an updated flair. With quaint cobblestone sidewalks, commercial corridors with retail shops, fine dining, and nightlife, Capitol Hill is never asleep.

If you want a true taste of what makes the neighborhood special try the Eastern Market on 7th Street SE. Established in 1873, it is still home to vendors peddling fresh meat, cheeses, and produce in indoor stalls and outdoor stands. Every weekend the areas around Eastern Market expand into a large outdoor flea market and craft fair, drawing visitors from all over the city. If you’d like to live in an area teeming with rich history, surrounded by the buildings in which our country is run, and experience a tightly knit community without sacrificing that city vibe, try Capitol Hill, where history and power are blocks away.
